Timeline for my fantasy world, Ursia

I didn't think anyone would be interested, but I've now had two people ask me about a timeline concerning the events of my fantasy world, Ursia. I have a working timeline hidden online, but thought I'd go ahead and make much of it public. There are, of course, some things I left out because they would potentially be spoilers. Other items potentially mysterious I've left in because ... well, because they're mysterious. Enjoy.

Note: For those who might be confused by my eccentricities: Historically in my world there is a nation known as Ursia which exists on the continent also named Ursia.

It gets worse. The nation of Dartague also has a city named Dartague, which is also the name of the race and the language and the culture. Yes, all one word. Dartague. They were not real wide thinkers back in the day, these barbaric folk.

I did this for my original fantasy world, Thanos, but haven't done it for Talera. It's a fun thing to construct, though.
